What is DEXA

A plain x-ray test is not the best way to assess bone density. To detect osteoporosis accurately, doctors use an enhanced form of x-ray technology called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA or DEXA). DEXA is a quick, painless procedure for measuring bone loss. Measurement of the lower spine and hips are most often done .

How is the test done?

It is a simple, non-invasive procedure. Once on the table you may be asked to stay still while the arm of the machine passes over your body taking measurements. It is important that you stay as still as possible during the procedure to ensure a clear, useful image. No anesthesia is required. The procedure is painless and radiation exposure is minima
